Speaker 1: (00:05)
But this is, this is certified clean cannabis. Is it organic? No, we cannot use that word. You know why the federal government owns that word? So this is the closest thing we can get in the United States right now. And we're in Maine. Unity made to be exact where less than a week away from our big vote and we are looking at certified clean grow cannabis. What makes this cannabis better than your cannabis? I am here today with Dawson, Julia of East coast CBD and we're going to discuss and go through his grow on what makes this exact cannabis so great to use as a medical uh, treatment. Welcome to up here in Maine. Again, take a look, just so you know, we're legit. We are going clean a certified clean cannabis. What is certified clean cannabis dos and tell us about this right here. Well thanks for coming here.

Speaker 1: (01:01)
Um, it's basically what we got is it's this [inaudible] it's the equivalent of an organically something that would be grown under organic standards. We just can't use the word like you mentioned. Um, so everything we use is an armory rated product or moth approval. Um, and, um, we pretty much follow the same procedures and standards. We keep good records of everything. Um, you know, we have very strict, um, regulation, uh, restrictions and stuff on what you can use and, and how you can, how you have to do these procedures and whatnot. So, so, um, that it's, it's a pretty cool program. It's brand new domain and, um, and right now there's five members and, and where, kind of like the pioneer and crew. And so we're, we're doing this trial run for a year and if everything goes good at the end of the year trial, which will be an August of next year, we're going to open it up to the public, pending the approval of a vote with the mafia board and a, and we're going to take it big time, hopefully, and maybe someday take it to other States and stuff.

Speaker 1: (02:09)
And, uh, and it took us about two, almost two and a half years to put the program together to get to the point where we're at now we can call this where I actually have a certificate say, and I'm certified and you're, yeah, exactly. So, and just for the sake of the video, I know we have a lot of growers that want to check out what's going on behind the scenes. We're going to go take a look. We are less than a week away from voting for a new president. Obviously Maine is one of the States voting on a recreational bill this year. We do have medical in Maine. Um, with that, can you show us, give us a little tour of how you like how you grow the cleanest cannabis in America. Yeah, that's a whole lot. Absolutely. Monologue. This will, this will be the real, you'll actually get your medicine and uh, give you more consultation against you, say, and how to use it best and how do you use it.

Speaker 1: (03:00)
And so right now at the time that we're filming, Maine does not have a recreational program. Again, that could change very soon. So tell us what we have here as we come down the medical side. Okay, so this is, this is some cookies that are infused with THC right here. These are just stickers. I agree. Okay. Um, but we also have some other different products over here. We've got some lip balm. Um, this is a, a bath bath bomb, I guess what you call that. And then we've got, um, uh, we got some zigzags here for smoking. Uh, so this is for, you know, if you want to rule your own. Um, and then, uh, we've got these things are called chillums and, and that's kind of like, well, it's almost like having a little pipe or something. It's like you can put one or two hits in there, um, for scoping purposes.

Speaker 1: (03:52)
And so this stuff up here is, is that what we're offering today for CBD strains that are available. So we have Valentine's X moose, a main favorite doctor, CBD and an ACDC does a kind of a well known strain as well. And then look in there. And that's something we wonderful. We specialize in. It's the CBD strains. And so that's a non-psychoactive strain as most people, a lot of people who are getting to know these days. And um, and so all these strains up here, none of them will get you a stone, so to speak. They're non-psychoactive here. We have a couple of THC strains we have available today, lemon, Stomper and hippie Keller. And I got this lemon Stomper. Oh, that's real nice. Let's see the different colors in that one.

Speaker 1: (04:41)
Yeah. So this is all a certified clean cannabis here. Um, we also offer some other products. We do what we sell a lot of capsules. Um, we have, and these are basically different, um, concentrations of, of um, Rick Simpson oil, I guess you'd call her a FICO oil. Um, so we have them in different strengths all pre capsulated. Um, here's the THC section over here. This one's the CVD section, and then we've got some different topicals. Um, we've got a sound that we make. Um, this is a really effective lotion that, uh, pro Verde laps formulated and they, they, uh, we, we contract to them, uh, to use our products and they, uh, use their, uh, their mix to make that stuff. We'll see her, yeah. Over here together with department and get a bunch of different stuff in here. Um, cookies, gummies, THC, that's all the THC down there and here.

Speaker 1: (05:45)
Okay. We've got CBD gummies up here. Got it. Um, if you want to go home and make your own brownies or something, we got, uh, already infused THC, coconut oil. Nice. And you'd put that melt down. Yeah. Replace it in a replacement for like butter or salt or whatever would be on recipe. And, and we've got some premade tinctures. They are low strike and typically we make those, um, at the customer's request, whether it's low, medium or high, it takes us like five minutes to whip one up. So, um, we offer those all different strikes. And then, uh, just different edibles throw here. Um, baked goods and candies and stuff. We're always looking to try to figure out a new product. Here's one of the latest, greatest products we came up with. Well, a friend actually gave us the recipe is the real story. But um, that's there.

Speaker 1: (06:36)
We call it pot popcorn, popcorn. And so it's basically infused, uh, it's caramelized popcorn and it's infused and it's, uh, it's very strong. It's very effective. Uh, nice. Starts out. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you. Um, so we can go a journey on and we have a lot of growers wandering around campus. What makes it so great? How do we grow it? What's our, what our yields like how many plants can we do? All those great questions. Oh, geez. Let's see what we can find for instance. Alright. Walk us through. Yeah, so this is, um, this is kind of what we call our bedrooms. Um, this is where we, we have like the clones, the clones in the smaller clips. Um, and then, uh, from here we're going to transplant them into the next room, which is going to be, those are the baby room. This is the billings to how many weeks?

Speaker 1: (07:38)
Um, this is about three weeks or so. Give or take two to three weeks from, from, from this point here, from going from a rooted clone, uh, into the soil. Gotcha. Um, great. And then what we do is we, we bring up, put him in a 15 gallon block yet. Alright, well actually no, actually I take that back. Let's go. We take it to the next level is like a one gallon bucket, which I'll uh, see that's in this remover here and we let them go, go a little bigger and, and once they've got a good, uh, roots established and, and the plant looks like it's ready to go to the next level, then we'll, we'll take it and put it in 50 gallon. So how old are these plants roughly? Um, these, these ones, it's like they just got transplanted. These are probably three or four weeks right now of growth.

Speaker 1: (08:40)
So they probably just recently came from the cloning room or the seedling room. Okay. And then, uh, and then after that, once those get established, the next room with 15 gallon thoughts and anger. Yes. And this is a diamond T. she is earth. This isn't anything bad. This is good. It's to keep the bugs away. It's all organic. Uh, but, uh, that's one of the problems about growing organic. You're constantly fighting mother nature and as you can see, every now and then you're going to see little teeny flies flying around. That's, uh, well those are fungus gnats is what we've been battling. So this is one of the tools we use. Um, and what it does is it actually, it's really fine, sharp little micro pieces of this stuff and it's licensed the bugs open when they crawl a little while. So I guess it's, it's pretty effective actually.

Speaker 1: (09:46)
And then what's the age of these, would you say? How many weeks or months in, um, these are going to be, uh, in between one and two months of, of growth from the, from the actual clones, you know, the, just, just going from a roof and he's like really healthy. Yeah. Yeah. They're coming along, they're looking pretty good there. And then, and then what we do is we go, uh, usually we bring them into this room. Next, you can smell that good old organic fertilizer kicking in, in this room. Absolutely. Yeah. So it's, uh, that's, uh, one of the downfalls of growing organic [inaudible] with that state about temperature. It seems like this is the one that's drunk. Tell us about temperature in your bra. Um, well, you know, it's the roots when they're this phase, they, I finally, they prefer a little bit warmer soil.

Speaker 1: (10:38)
Um, and it seems to be that that's, that's the way to really get up to explode at the right, you get a decent humidity going and, and, uh, some little bit warmer than normal. I think we're probably like 76, 78 degrees. And, and, and it's important to have the wind blowing on it because what the wind does is it, it not only keeps the bugs or anything from kinda establishing a home base or something, or just getting comfortable, but it also keeps the plants swamp and healthy, uh, more, they're gonna be wiggling around and stuff, and more fiber builds up and whatnot. And strength is going to naturally happen with the plant. So, so it's good to have that stuff going. And, and, um, and you know, typically what we try to do is we try to use a drainage system. Like it's a temporary thing, but what happens is when we want our plants, if we have overflow, it comes down here and it catches in this, we've got a couple inches here of water in this tray to build up and then we'll just take a vacuum cleaner and come in a shop back type thing and suck everything up.

Speaker 1: (11:45)
And that's good because you don't want to have your roots being, you know, submerged in that, in that liquid stuff there for long of a time. It's not healthy for the roots. Um, so, so it's little tricks you figure out as you get gone. We built these little cards around one of those trucks, secret camps. So I'll take you from the next room. It would be the Lauer and I'll show you a, we're going to go through a couple of areas before that. All right. But this is, uh, this is usually where we do all our from it. And we have lot of trim trimming going on, a lot of trimming. Right, right. And, and so this is, uh, I guess this is probably what we have for an example of that we had in the patients from which strain is this one lemon stopper.

Speaker 1: (12:35)
Yeah. That seems to be our number one thing going right now is lemon star for, but this is a, a good example of it. Talk a little bit what you do with the extras, the extra trim here, once it's all done. Yeah. So what we'll do is we'll let that dry up in, in what I call the bud dry in rum. And then, um, once it gets nice ice, pretty crispy and everything, um, we'll basically concentrated into something or infuse it. So, um, if you guys want to come in here, I'll show you. We're going to magic magic butter.

Speaker 1: (13:12)
Um, well that's it. I don't know where she keeps this thing. I know it's here somewhere, but here's the box. Anyways, so, so we'll take one of these things and, and uh, and put our, our, uh, cannabis into it. And it's basically you, uh, it's got a whole, uh, system to it. There. You just kinda set it and forget it. Um, you put your oil in, you put your cannabis in, and then it just grinds it up and cooks it and grinds it. And then you basically gonna filter out your oil at the end and, and you're ready to go. It's, it's a pretty slick system. And they've got all the Apple Yeah. And if you followed directions properly, you'll get a really good decarboxylated, um, medicine that's, you know, and you'll get the most out of out of your medicine for the most part.

Speaker 1: (14:03)
Um, so, so that's a good, that's a good, easy, quick cheat to get some quick medicine out of your trim and leftovers. And from there you can make like those, those little oil cupcake things we saw and then you can make anything with that or, or another thing you can do is you can make it into what we call Rick Simpson oil or, um, you know, FICO, uh, pulled plan extraction. Uh, let's see. So here's, here's some examples of that. This one's a THC based oil. Uh, this one's a CBD based oil. And, and so the trick to this is we use alcohol instead of, um, instead of oil, we're going to use alcohol. And then what we're going to do is once that alcohol, it's gonna, it's gonna dissolve the cannabinoids and whatnot into that alcohol. Uh, and when we soak the marijuana into it, the cannabis.

Speaker 1: (14:56)
And so, so then what happens is you got to filter out all that cannabis from the alcohol and now you're boil that alcohol down and you're going to get concentrated cannabinoids. Cause Rick Simpson oil is obviously a very big subject right now for different, uh, afflictions. How does someone take, if you sold this or gave it to them, what would they do? Okay, so this is a one milliliter syringe right here. And typically with our test results, it comes up to be about 600 milligrams of cannabinoids in it, 600 to six 50, somewhere in there typically. So that's, um, that's going to give you a base number to go by. And then from there you can do all kinds of stuff with it. I could make a batch of, I mean I can make a deep magic gummy bears with this and just squirt this right into the sugary base and whiskey didn't really good.

Speaker 1: (15:47)
And now I'm going to know I just infused 650 milligrams so that I can just do the math based on how many gummy bears I have. And I know I'm pretty much, well I'm going to have for medicine content. And um, so the, another thing we can do is we can make, I typically have people, I make them into capsules for people and I'll pre measure it within the same kind of idea with taking the numbers and how many capsules I'm getting out of it. And I'll mix it with something like a coconut oil or MCT oil, which is a, uh, this is derived from coconut oil. This is a really good one to use. It's high fat soluble. And so that's good because that's going to make this kind of allow for medicine to, uh, infuse, um, uh, with the best results usually. Um, so that's, that's one of the things we use.

Speaker 1: (16:36)
And, um, coconut oil is a good one. A lot of people use olive oil, things like that. Sometimes just regular butter works. Um, we also make infused honey, which is really cool cause you can mix it with like tea or whatever. And it's a good, it's a good way to get sugar and take if you are, if you're a cancer patient, you don't want those high processed sugars. Um, so that's a, that's a little bit about that. A lot of people use this stuff for epilepsy and also cancer. Um, you can actually fight and kill cancer with us if you, if, you know, if you do it right and you're, and you get the right kind of cancer, it's uh, a lot of times I've had people who've come and had reversals and it's, yeah, it's, it's a very big thing if it's getting to be big.

Speaker 1: (17:19)
Um, and so I think there's a lot of new upcoming science that's gonna tell us a lot more about how that's happening and why that's happening with some people and other people. It's not happening with, cause that's something that's really frustrating right now is that you'll see some people come in and you know, they'll actually, their tumors will get smaller, they'll start, everything will be going in their favor and then other people will have, you know, the same kind of cancer, the same thing, and it goes the wrong way. So it's, um, so that's, you know, up and stuff I think in the cannabis world and I'm looking forward to some of that stuff. Um, but we might as well go to the flower room.

Speaker 1: (17:59)
So here we go. And on N, so these rooms have [inaudible] and this is a a thousand watt bowl. So you've got all these, how old is the plan? This is, this looks to be about, I'm going to say four to five weeks into flower mode. Um, so, so this is something that's probably going to be ready in about three to four, maybe five weeks tops. Right now it's just kind of going into it, building up, poking out [inaudible] to turn to the darker colors and whatnot. Um, so here's, here's [inaudible]. This one probably just got introduced. What we do is we label, you brought him into the room [inaudible] and that gives us, um, identification for which plan goes to which patient status card we all have. These are all different strains. [inaudible]

Speaker 1: (20:01)
do you want to see the bud drying room? Sure. Yeah. Thanks. Dries and cures and whatnot. And so we, we try to keep these lights off because you'd like, actually it's not good for the, you know, for curing and drying the plan, things like that. Uh, Oh, typically about anywhere, usually about four or five days. Um, sometimes it takes a little longer. It's all based on what your humidity level is at and what temperature is at. And so some people go for a long cure with, uh, you know, uh, low temps and uh, you know, medium humidity. And then other people get the humidity a little lower and the temperature a little higher and go for a little bit quicker of a cure. We're probably try to go for a little bit quicker over cure. And, um, from what I see, I, I typically have better results with that.

Speaker 1: (21:14)
Whereas as far as the overall flavor and the smell, and another trick we do is we leave it on the branch, um, and we don't pull it off and clip it off the branch until we get a good snap coming from the branch. So you can see this as just the bed right now. It's just kind of folding over. That's not ready yet. But, um, tomorrow there's a good chance we'll come in and we'll grab you. Exactly. And when you snap it then goes, it's ready for the jar in the retail area. Yeah. What we do is we'll clip it off here. Um, we'll kind of get a feel for it. If it feels like it's good and ready to go, we'll, we'll, we'll go from there and put it in the jar. Um, if it feels like it might need a little bit more time than w, um, sometimes just putting the jar and burp it a little bit. Um, and, and so, uh, so that's, that's basically what happens there. And, and, um, from there, uh, we can make it into anything. And like I said to all different tinctures, oils, and.
